What do FYSPRTs do?

FYSPRTs serve as an integral part of the Children’s Behavioral Health Governance Structure that was adopted within the T.R. et al. v. Strange and Birch (originally Dreyfus and Porter) Settlement Agreement and informs and provides oversight for high-level policy-making, program planning, decision-making, and for the implementation of this agreement, including the implementation of Wraparound with Intensive Services (WISe).

Read the charter.

How do FYSPRTs work?

Through respectful partnerships, families, youth, systems, and communities collaborate, influence, and provide leadership to address challenges and barriers by promoting cohesive behavioral health services for children, youth and families in Washington State.
